Bootstrapper

http://bootstrapper.sourceforge.net/
Creates a customized bootstrapping script

The bootstrapper program creates a customized bootstrap script by scanning the autoconf macros in a project's configure.in file and using them to determine which programs need to be used to create a usable configure script. It then creates a bootstrap script which is custom tailored to your project's configuration. The resulting bootstrap script is useful for rebuilding the configure script and Makefile.in files, particularly for a project which may be downloaded off of a cvs server. By including a bootstrap script in a cvs repository, all auto generated files related to configure can be excluded from the cvs repository. It is also useful for a developer importing a new project onto a cvs repository. Running `make distclean' then `./bootstrap --clean' removes all auto-generated files, instead of removing them by hand.
